Goody Two-Shoes Was A Goody-Goody

Discussion Questions: Why are “do-gooders” often perceived in a negative way, especially by those in their youth? ( Discussion question )

    Before giving the opinion, let me share my view of "do-gooders" often perceived in a negative way. Being a person who always follows the rules and has never made ​​a mistake is the perfect person. People are always desired by the regulators. His / her figure will always be a role model and example. To be the one as mentioned is very difficult. Why? We know some sayings such as "No one is perfect" ,
"Rules are there to be broken", and "Good and bad". So when there is regulation there will be some who obey and those who violate them. And why those who obey the rules are often perceived in negative way? This is due to some perceptions, such as people who obey the rules is a person who wants to get a compliment, who do not want to be bothered, and who wish to be rewarded. These perceptions come up from some jealousy and narrow minded people.

  And now, my opinion about the discussion question. "Do-gooders" often perceived in a negative way, especially by those in their youth because many young people lack of responsibilities, and  each of young people with the showing culture of competition among each other that make up a personal "ego" is very high among them and has failed crowded feeling and sympathy and empathy for others and doubts about how much more responsible in their life. Doing both among adolescents and young people will be regarded as quaint, embarrassing and nothing less is considered good and gentle and polite as weak, "nerd" and soft so young people prefer to play computer games in the form of vicious, evil and like to break the rules because it is more challenging and giving them freedom. It's always the focus on themselves and they like to be free from the shackles of responsibility.

You are welcome Tara and thank you for appreciating this blog.

"People are always desired by regulators ", means people who obey all the rules making by the regulators or people who "do-gooders" are always desirable. Would you please give me the best sentence to state that meaning? I will be very happy hehehe.

I think parents should give responsibilities to them in steps, and they must choose which responsibilities can be given to them whether they are suitable or not . Of course not, but It's a nature condition that makes them doing that.

 Thanks for responding to this week's Interesting Facts Discussion Question. You're right. Young people often focus on themselves. Do you think parents need to give them more responsibilities at that age? Or is this what young people should be doing?

What do you mean by this? 
"People are always desired by the regulators."

Very interesting and well done Dee Dee. I will offer a minor correction later, where you left out a word in a couple of places.
Good job!

Thanx for teaching me new word :) seriously I didnt have any idea who do-gooders are. I agree that during the puberty we all feel like reformators and we are full of revolutionary ideas :D There is nothing bad about being yourself, anyway sometimes we are unable to see bad impact of our behaviour.
